I’m not sure what it says about me, but the sadder the love story, the more likely I am to enjoy it.
Happily ever after? No, thanks. I want heartbreak, tears, sadness, tragedy. I love a story when two people are forced to separate. I love the mystery of what came after and I relish the chance to cherish what was and what will never be tarnished.
My favourite movies feature impossible love. Some of them are:
Lost in Translation
500 Days of Summer
Romeo and Juliet
You get my drift. The more I can cry about to – movie, book, song, whatever – the more it is likely to make a mark on my heart.
I just finished one of those impossible love story books tonight. It was sad and I cried and I loved it.
